gospel glory

HAS THE GOSPEL MESSAGE LOST SOME OF ITS GLORY SINCE FIRST DELIVERED?

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.. And all was very good" [Gen 1:1, 27 and 31].

...God's rescue "was finished from the foundation/creation of the world" [Heb 4:3]. "My word that goes out from my mouth will accomplish all I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" [Is 55:11]. Perfect, makes no mistakes. Can lose nothing. Ultimately all will repent.. there may even "be weeping and gnashing of teeth" in "outer darkness" but - "In Christ all will be made alive! Each in his own order - those who are Christ’s at His coming, then the end when Christ hands the kingdom over to God the Father.. that He may be all in all" [1 Cor 15:22-28].

How Curious!


Acts 13:48 - New International Version (NIV)

"When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed."

Acts 13:48 - Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

"And the nations hearing were glad, and were glorifying the word of the Lord, and did believe -- as many as were appointed to life age-during."

from - https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=acts%2013:48&version=NIV;NKJV;KJV;AMPC;YLT
_____________

The original word which was translated "eternal" in the NIV and "age-during" in the Young's Literal is:

"aionios - G166 - from 165 - aion - an age"

The Strong's Concordance (the book) adds "by extension perpetuity.. by implication the world.. age, course, eternal, (for) ever (more)..." all the way to "began, without end" 

And an online version (of Strong's) says this - 

G166
αἰώνιος 
aiōnios 
ahee-o'-nee-os 
From G165; perpetual (also used of past time, or past and future as well)
KJV Usage: eternal, for ever, everlasting, world (began).

Totally leaving out "age" from the Greek word "aion".
